Need more knicks! I would have jumped on them if the 32" hadn't sold out so damn fast.

If you're not going to re-stock, maybe you could sell instructions/patterns for making them?

I believe it's because Mike asked for input then largely ignored the responses. I'm sure he couldn't accomodate everyone, but if I remember correctly, the key things that were overlooked were:

What I neglected to mention was that the bike in question is a fixed gear, so having the chain on would be helpful--although I might try bracing the opposite crank arm with a 2x4 before I re-assembly...

I'll try not to be insulted. I know how pedals are threaded.

Do you want to replace it with sealed BB? If so, you'll need three pieces of info:

Removing pedals that seem to be held on with a thread locker

Just picked up a bike with some speedplay frogs that cannot be removed. I'm figuring there's some loctite sitting in the thread--or the previous owner cranked the pedals on so tight that the threads...

The required spindle length is based on the crank and has nothing to do with the bike frame. You'll need a new BB with a 110mm square taper spindle to use the All City Cranks. The SRAM/Truvative BB...

Safety... in that it's one more tool a thief has to bring to remove parts from the bike. I know, it's all smoke and mirrors. I carry a 15mm wrench, so why wouldn't a thief.

But thanks! I'll check...
